Re: TypeIt4Me on sale at the App Store

I took advantage of this sale, which is a big discount, and I have to say the software itself seems *very* good. But I do have one issue that has made me go back to using Snippets, even though I like the extra features of TypeIt4Me. I don't know if anyone has a solution, but I am posting this as bot...

Re: Probably wrong place-but help-key presses in wrong order!

I love you guys!

Where else could I go with a serious, annoying problem, and come away literally laughing out loud, and with lots of good advice to boot.

But NO ONE is putting any Microsoft OS ANYWHERE NEAR my beloved MBA!!! :D

Re: Probably wrong place-but help-key presses in wrong order!

Thanks guys,

I will send it to Apple as soon as my exam is done. In the meantime, I am backing up to an external drive several times a day!

And umm... How do you get the battery out of a MBA then? I thought it was designed so that you couldn't?

Thanks all,

H.

Re: Probably wrong place-but help-key presses in wrong order!

*sigh* That would be ideal, but unfortunately my 'nearest' Apple store is several hours journey away, and being practically housebound due to ill health is basically out of the question :cry:

Guess I'll just have to hope for the best!

Re: Probably wrong place-but help-key presses in wrong order!

I owe you guys an update, but there's not much to tell! Having called Apple support and reinstalled my OS etc. etc. the problem hasn't gone away. I will have to send it back for repair. However, as I have a University exam in less than a month, and as all my work is on the laptop, I've opted to wait...

Re: Probably wrong place-but help-key presses in wrong order!

Thanks everyone- I can't tell you how grateful I am for all your help, advice and knowledge. Without it I would be convinced by whatever the assistants tell me, which seemingly isn't a good idea. The problems are persisting, although the advisor managed to help me restart the computer. Now it runs v...

Re: Probably wrong place-but help-key presses in wrong order!

Thanks all. I don't think it's a cooling issue, but what it is...well, the story so far: Spent two hours on phone to Apple Care (and I hate to think what that will cost!). They told me I had several problems, two related to internet, two to the computer. First, they said I had corrupted caches or pr...

Re: Probably wrong place-but help-key presses in wrong order!

Please excuse me coming back for more advice, but I have discovered something that I think could be, if not actually causing the problem, a major symptom. As advised, I checked all my settings, and they seem fine. But I also ran activity monitor, and there I think I see a problem. I have 4GB of RAM....

Re: Probably wrong place-but help-key presses in wrong order!

Thank you both anyway, much appreciated. I'll try turning off all my log-in items and see if that helps. Otherwise, I guess a call to Apple is in order :(

Thanks guys :)

Probably wrong place-but help-key presses in wrong order!

Ok, so today my macbook air has started registering my key presses in the wrong order. It's happening in all apps, but sometimes stops for about a minute before getting bad again. If I type at anything like a normal speed, the letters come out mixed up, and there is a huge lag between my typing and ...

Re: 'Inbox' Tab as in DevonThink

Thanks all for the replies and suggestions- much appreciated! I won't deny I'm disappointed that a tab inbox won't be considered, but obviously it doesn't suit everyone. I happen to be a fan of those tabs- I have 9 on my 11" screen! The other suggestions are good ones-no they don't exactly solv...

'Inbox' Tab as in DevonThink

Firstly, apologies- I am sure this must have been talked of before, but I couldn't find it through a search or in the first 20-odd pages. What I would love to see is an inbox that lives in a tab at the side of the screen into which documents can be dragged. I know there are other ways to import docu...

Re: Urgent Keyboard Recommendations Solicited!

Sorry! That'll teach me to try to research at that time of day (maybe :) )

I'm glad you've found a supplier though :)

Re: Urgent Keyboard Recommendations Solicited!

Don't know if this is what you are after, but it was the first UK result I could find.
